*****Update: Come see Page 6, but in short, Ping is doing great at the farm! Pics and video included! So I just had my first two hatches of ducklings ever (hatched as a favor to a friend, who couldn't get them to 'go' in her incubator) and they're all doing great- eating, drinking, splashing in the water tupperware and making so much noise.... except one of them. The rest were up and mobile less than a day after hatching and gobbling up food like you wouldn't believe. Two of them were 'late' hatchers- one was a muscovy mix and one was about 3 days late. It's the 3 days late one I am worried for. It will take little pecks at the food if I move it over to the food and swish my finger around in the starter, but it's incredibly tiny and thin compared to the rest, even the one that hatched a day and a half after it. I thought maybe it would have a little slower start on the first day, because he had SUCH a hard time hatching (I had to help and the inner membrane had practically glued itself to his skin and feathers, so there were several warm baths involved before he started to fluff out)... but it's been days since then and he hasn't really grown, still isn't eating like the others were, and is cold -all the time- even under the 100 watt heat lamp at times. Even a few seconds out from under the lamp makes him start shivering, and it's 80 degrees in my house outside of the brooder and it was over 90 yesterday (in the shade!) when I took the whole group outside. Currently he's indoors in the brooder under a big heat lamp with his nearly 2-day-younger sibling for company. They've got mixed pine shaving bedding with paper towels over the top of that. They've got a water tower they both have used on their own and 2 food dishes- 1 is the bottom of an old waterer and 1 is a food bowl made to go on wire bird cages. They seem to like the second one better. He's about 3-4 days old. I *think* he's a runner mix duckling by his colors (which could account for his being smaller, but I have another which looks *exactly* like him from the week prior, but who is doing just fine). I'm thinking I really need to get some food into this little guy a few times a day, more than a peck or two, but I'm not sure what would be best. Same as chicks, ground egg and yogurt with mashed starter? I've heard people saying sugar water or add electrolytes to the water- how exactly does one 'add electrolytes' to water? Is there anything else I can do to help this... well, runt of the litter so to speak?
